POLICE Secondary School (PSS), Minna, Niger State, at the weekend graduated 458 students for the 2015/2016 to mark the 19th batch of graduating students of the college.
The ceremony, which was held on Saturday, featured the award of special prizes to the best 30 students in each of the 27 subjects offered in the school, and the inauguration of a block of one-storey building for students’ hostel accommodation, named after the new acting Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Kpotu Idris.
IGP Idris, who was represented by the Niger State Police Commissioner, Alhaji Abubakar Marafa, urged the graduating students to put into practice what they have learned in the school, and to be good ambassadors of the college.
He also advised them to shun cultism, drug abuse and other negative tendencies before and after getting admission into higher institutions of learning.
Also, the Commandant of the college, CSP Umar M. Hadejia, said that over 90 per cent of the 458 graduating students recorded an average of credit pass in all subjects in the last WAEC/ NECO examinations.
The commandant applauded the IGP and the police commissioner as well the school Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) for their efforts towards the growth and development of the college.
The PTA chairman, Mallam Zubairu Idris, charged Nigerians and government to assist the college in the expansion of its infrastructure, as its present facilities are overstretched.
